President's Message 

As we pursue the knowledge of the good, we unshackle ourselves from the 
chains of ignorance, leave the world of dimness and finally enter the light of 
wisdom. And so it is in Plato's Republic. 

Our world of dimness is comparable to Plato's cave of shadows where those 
people possessing desirable traits which enable them to enter the class of silver 
finally are able to reach the stage of the philosopher kings. We will be for- 
ever indebted to our philosopher kings — the faculty — who have enriched our 
lives and have set us on that brilliant path of wisdom. 




It would be impossible for those of us in the class of 1958 who 
have known and loved Miss Mileham to tell the story of our life at 
North Adams State Teachers College without including a tribute to 
her. Miss Mileham's warmth and generosity did much to brighten 
our college days and will live in our hearts throughout our future 



We, the class of 1958, shall not forget the friendly efficient 
manner of Mr. Luddy who succeeded Miss Mileham as our class 
advisor. He has always been willing to help us in any way as our 
advisor, teacher, and friend. We should like to express our ap- 
preciation for his assistance to the class.

"There is no truer truth obtainable than comes of 

Class History 

On a September morning in 1954. a timid group of students approached the 
portals of North Adams State Teachers College, where they hoped to shed the 
shackles that held them in the darkness of the cave of ignorance and enter the 
world of light, knowledge and wisdom. After a number of hesitant starts we finally 
caught a faint glimmer of light and thus began our slow, laborious ascent from 
the bottom of the cave. 

Friday evening of our first week arrived and we shyly attended our first social 
event, which was a reception held in our honor. At the reception one of our mem- 
bers, Joan Dion, was named freshman Queen. Halloween loomed over the horizon 
and brought with it the responsibility of sponsoring a dance. The dance, which was 
a grand success, showed that with cooperation and work we could accomplish a 
great deal. 

Other travelers ahead were beginning to be aware of us when Bunny and Annette 
were elected to the cheering squad and were chosen as queen and attendant respec- 
tively at the Winter Carnival. 

November brought political rallies, discussions and the long awaited day when 
we elected our leaders to help us wend our way toward the glimmer of light. We 
chose Paul Nash, Bunny Wary, Ike Koza and Nancy Alsing. 

One of the most memorable events was the Christmas Party, which was high- 
lighted by the presentation by the student body of a beautiful leather chair to the 
retiring President, Dr. Grover C. Bowman. Although we had known Dr. Bowman 
for only a short time, we had already developed a deep respect and admiration for 

This was the year of firsts. Dr. Freel began his first year as President of the 
college, the first Parents' day was held, Alter Natus was formed and we had our 
first experience with such things as "outside reading #1" and "horizontal questions." 
This was also the year when most of us met and some of us conquered the three- 
hour exam. In June we stopped on a ledge to rest before starting the next lap of 
our journey. 

In September. 1955, we saw that many of our party, preferring other trails, had 
decided to go no further with us. The path leading to the light had become very 
steep but we felt that if we could reach the next ledge then we would, in all proba- 
bility, achieve our goal. The reading of the Honor List at the beginning of the year 
indicated that the chains of ignorance were beginning to slacken, but those days in 
Dr. John's lab convinced us that we had a long way to go before they were broken. 

We found that we had come back with a strong feeling of unity and we chose 
as our very capable leader Jack Murphy who was assisted by Denny Duquette. Jean 
Shepard and Shirley Sweet. The ray of light, which had increased in both size and 
intensity, shone upon the artistic efforts we made in the planning and decorating 
for the Sophomore Prom, which was highly acclaimed by all who attended it. 
Inspired by our success in this venture and driven by our creative urge, we pro- 
duced "Minnie the Mermaid," who enhanced the Winter Carnival setting and led 
us to the first prize in the snow sculpturing contest. Not content with this honor, 
we became Stunt Night champions after demonstrating our acting ability in "Snow 
Drop and the Seven Drips." 

Although it was a most enjoyable year, it was not entirely devoted to having fun. 
Scholastically this was the year for daily quizzes, books to be read, and papers to 
be written. We found that we had to work steadily or fall by the wayside. Sopho- 
more Exams were a credit to some and a disappointment to others, as they showed 
us all our strengths and weaknesses in this struggle and proved that once again we 
ranked highest among the State Teachers Colleges. Arriving exhausted, but much 
wiser, at the next resting place, we paused to regain our strength before continuing 
our journey. 

As we continued, we found that the path had grown quite narrow and presented 
new obstacles. It took time to adjust to the different conditions, but we were de- 
termined not to fall back into the darkness. Burton Albert. Bunny Wary. Jean 
Shepard and Shirley Sweet led the group through methods, demonstration lessons. 
and "happy time" classes. We soon became aware that "drill follows understanding" 
and that people "learn by doing." If the latter is true, we must have learned a great 
deal. We spent hours preparing units, maps, arithmetic devices, tachistoscopes. and 
flash cards. 

We found time along the way to sponsor the Winter Carnival and present "Her- 
man and Gertrude" on Stunt Night. The men gained recognition when they became 
the Intramural Champions in basketball while the quiet female population became 
well known as strains of harmonious flutophone selections were heard throughout 
the school. 

Drama seemed to be one of our strong points that year, as five of our members, 
Paul Nash. Henry Reynolds. Alan Murray, Bunny Wary, and Nancy Alsing. lent 
their talents to the school play. "The Tender Trap." Nancy and Paul also received 
the distinction of being elected to the dramatic society. Delta Psi Omega, an honor 
bestowed upon a selected few thespians. 

In May we had the honor of capping the seniors, who had finally reached the 
mouth of the cave and were ready to step forth into the light. When we had done 
this, we realized that we were truly on our way to the completion of our formal 
enlightening period. 

As we began the last and most exciting part of our journey- we struggled to over- 
come such obstacles as lesson plans, motivation, and registers — in blue-black ink. 
Realizing that we would need an unusually skillful leader, we chose Alan Murray. 
Alan's assistants for the year were Dick Stomski. Annette Haddad. and Jean Shepard. 

Activities became our byword. Stunt night was quite successful but some of our 
members were not content with working on such a small scale and so Nancy Alsing. 
Burton Albert, and Alan Murray lent their talents and abilities to the Drama Club 
production. "The Hasty Heart." May 14 brought Cap and Gown Day and we sud- 
denly realized that we would soon be stepping out into the unknown region beyond 
the mouth of the cave. We were eager to learn what awaited us but hesitant about 
leaving the security we had known. Time seemed to have sprouted wings as we 
flew through our party at the Springs, the Senior Banquet, our last exams, and then 

We began to think about finding positions and while we looked forward to new 
places and new friends, we were saddened by the thought that we would no longer 
be together as a class. 

On June 8. 1958. our struggle temporarily ceased as we boldly stepped forth 
from the cave of ignorance to the edge of the world of light!

Our campus is a postage stamp affair 

Made smaller yet by dipping tiers of rolling green 

And spiny hedges grown fat and square. 

Some decent blacktop eats up more of it 

Carving a Greek Pi and a Hebrew Beyt in the grassy floor 

In a ritual show of beauty's wit. 

Rising from this tiny patch of verdancy 

Rears College Hall on stony haunches, and poses there 

Like a Grande Dame rusty with dignity. 

So far not too much, I'm afraid 

At least to those who take their measures by rule and count 

And only know worth by what is paid. 

But once within those cavernous portals 

Some magic conjures the immortals, 

And a witchery in the printed pages 

Revives the sighs of a thousand ages. 

The breath of heroes stirs again 

Louder than their battles' din. 

The smiles of Helen, and the songs of the siren 

Emerge full-bodied from the soul of a lectern. 

White-togaed visionaries stride the top hall. 

Though out of this world, they're the most real of all. 

They delve in pure thought, these classical sages, 

And speak of the good life in ethical phrases. 

And Logicians' circles and Freudian dreams 

Compose themselves near Utopian schemes. 

Comte makes a pattern of social research; 

And a Pieta hangs in a Romanesque Church. 

The scratch of a stylus, an harmonic gale 

When Debussy's whole-tone meets Brahms' modal scale. 

To Asia, at last, her academic due — 

Afghanistanism yields to Pandit Nehru. 

Newton's three laws of gravity and mass 

Reduce all the others to "keep off the grass." 

Algebra, trig, and tests and measures 

Are the pearls of State Teachers' abstract treasures. 

Curriculum, methods, and practice teaching — 

It's Dewey, versus dogmatic preaching. 

Gargoyles leer, and Bucephalus prances, 

While a diaphanous Duncan creates modern dances. 

The Tower of Pisa, and Galileo reckons 

Bodies fall thirty-two feet per second, each second. 

Wherever we look, in College Hall's sphere. 

Space seethes with life, and visions appear. 

And every one's real, and everything's true. 

Compelling our notice, expanding our view. 

Our college is a postage stamp, which so 

Extends our scope in space and time, that Betelgeuse is right next door 

And the Primal Sludge is but a wink ago.

In the past few years, North Adams State Teachers College was considered the 
last resort in basketball among the colleges in Western Massachusetts. However, 
time has changed and with it so has our major sport. The recently completed 
campaign bears true witness to this spectacular change. In a real sense North 
Adams, record-wise, was one of the most victorious college teams in Western 
Massachusetts during the '57-'58 season. Moreover, affirming the superiority of 
the team are the resounding wins over such stalwarts as New Britain and Willimantic. 

It was because of such triumphs that we completed our season with an overall 
record of eleven wins and five losses, while our New England Conference record 
stood at an admirable ten wins — four losses. The crowning point of the season was 
reached when North Adams scored one of the greatest victories in the history of 
the college by surprising New Britain State Teachers College 67-55. Yet we found 
ourselves at the close of the season losing, to the Connecticut five, a berth in the 
N.E.T.C. play-offs. 

All the laurels, however, must be bestowed upon the coach and the team, whose 
starting five proved to be a well-knit combination. Under the direction of our 
expert coach, Hyman Patashnick, we gained good board control from our rebounding 
aces, Paul Farmer and Fred LaFave, while Arnie Busold and George St. Pierre pro- 
vided an excellent scoring combination. Joe Zavattaro assumed the role of play- 
maker and floor general. Assisting in many ways in the conquests was the strong 
reserve which proved to be the determining factor in this year's success. 

In the final analysis the 1957-1958 season brought North Adams into the lime- 
light of competitive basketball among the New England teachers colleges. The 
results achieved during this season not only attest to the potential of the team but 
they also indicate great things in the future for North Adams State Teachers 
College. Thus, in our four years, North Adams has once again become one of the 
foremost contenders in New England Teachers Conference basketball.

These headlines, which blared across the North Adams Transcript, announced the 
arrival of basehall at State Teachers College after a lapse of more than a decade. 
Under the guidance of Joe Zavattaro, a former Pittsburgh Pirates farm system player, 
the team initiated its rather short season by defeating Castleton twice and losing a 
thriller to the Williams College Freshmen. 

As it awaits entrance into the New England Teachers College Baseball Conference, 
the team is fast becoming a strong outfit and formidable competitor.
